    What does the Sigrdrufumal (back) tattoo say in english? Is it something cool or just giberish?

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @iamkingxiv Hey, I was wondering the same thing. I know I'm a month late, but in case you have not yet found out, I took it upon myself to decipher it. Here's what I found:

    If you're not familiar with it, the Sigrdrifumal is the title of a section in the Poetic Edda.

    The main tattoos that are important are the chest and back ones. The chest tattoo comes first, then the back tattoo, and they form a pair. They're written in the younger futhark alphabet, but the text is actually in English. The tattoos say:

    Chest

    Vicotry [sic] runes
    you must know
    if you will have
    victory

    Back

    Some on the grasp
    and some on the
    inlay,
    and name Tyr
    twice

    This is actually the sixth stanza in the saga, and it originally reads:

    Sigrúnar þú skalt kunna,
    ef þú vilt sigr hafa,
    ok rísta á hialti hiǫrs,
    sumar á véttrimum,
    sumar á valbǫstum,
    ok nefna tysvar Tý

    Victory-runes thou shalt know,
    if thou wilt have victory,
    and carve on thine sword-hilt,
    some on the furrow,
    some on the flat,
    and beseech/name Tyr twice.

    There are also arm tattoos. The right arm has a loop of text going around the top near the shoulder. This text simply reads "Valhalla". Both the left and right arm have text looping around the forearm. This text is inverted for some reason, as if reflected in a mirror. Both arms say "Sigrdrifumal".

    And that's all. Hopefully this puts your mind at ease.
